    I need some alum spacers, but an online search yeilded less than stellar results.

    Can anyone make spacers this size: 3/8"ID, 1"OD and 1.25"L. Need qty 4.

    Thanks

    An Aluminum rod and a drill press could do the job.

    It's not for comb spacers. I need it to mount my Forster Co-Ax press and I need to raise it off the bench approx 1.25". I wanted something nice like alum spacers instead of wood.

    I believe for that press, they recommend 1 oz. gold coins.
